    I'm using access 2000 as frontent to mysql with ODBC. A wizard generated
    the following code to find a record on a form using a combobox. It works
    perfect. However, here's the question, I have no reference to DAO libraies
    what so ever. The references are ADO 2.7, OLE automation, microsoft access
    9.0, and visual basic for applications. Notice the findfirst in the code,
    ADO doesn't have findfirst. Why is this working?
    Also notice Me.Recordset.Clone instead of Me.Recordsetclone.

    Private Sub Combo14_AfterUpdate()
    ' Find the record that matches the control.
    Dim rs As Object
    Set rs = Me.Recordset.Clone
    rs.FindFirst "[petid] = " & Str(Me![Combo14])
    Me.Bookmark = rs.Bookmark
    End Sub

    It's working because the Recordset of a form is a DAO recordset. You don't
    need the DAO library as a reference in this case because you're not creating
    any new DAO objects.
